OVERLAND PARK, KS, USA (April 20, 2017) EunSu Lee, Ph.D., Assistant Professor at New Jersey City University, Jersey City, New Jersey, has been named a regional recipient of the 2017 ACBSP Teaching Excellence Award. The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs recognizes individuals each year who exemplify teaching excellence in the classroom.

Dr. Lee will be honored, along with other regional recipients, at ACBSP Conference 2017, June 24-27 in Anaheim, Ca. He will receive a medallion and a $250 check. Two International Teaching Excellence Award recipients will be announced at a special Salute to Regions luncheon, one from a baccalaureate/graduate degree-granting institution and one from an associate degree-granting institution. As a regional recipient, Dr. Lee is now a candidate for the international award.

“Dr. Lee is a gifted instructor who consistently receives exceptionally positive feedback from our students,” said Dr. Wanda Rutledge, Chairperson, Management Department, Jersey City University. “His syllabi and lessons are uniformly excellent, and his class presentations regularly connect theoretical concepts to real world examples. He is extremely attentive to his students needs; I have personally witnessed the many long hours that Dr. Lee has dedicated to counseling and advising his students and looking for opportunities to introduce them to exciting research experiences. In short, he is an outstanding teacher and mentor,” she said.
